The Xbox Game Pass service gets two new additions today: Fallout 76 for both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC, with CrossCode joining Xbox Game Pass. Endless Space 2 also arrives for Xbox Game Pass for PC today.

Fallout 76

Fallout 76's a pretty hefty game, with an estimated completion time of around 80-100 hours. The game's had a somewhat mixed reception, but the recent Wastelanders update added in NPCs, factions, and a reputation system, along with new content, should have gone some way towards plugging the gaps in the game. Bethesda's also planning to introduce seasons into the game: Season One has already begun, and at the same time, Public Teams were added in. If you've not yet tried it, or haven't picked it up in a while, it might be worthwhile to start it up again while it's on Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC. Fallout seems to be on everyone's minds lately — a Fallout TV series was recently announced as in development from Amazon Studios.

CrossCode just released yesterday, while Endless Space 2 is also a new addition, so we don't yet have enough data to give an estimated completion time for either game. CrossCode has got two votes so far, giving it a rating of 4/5 — if you end up trying either game out, why not tell us what you think by voting and giving your completion time?

All three games should be available today.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
